East Anglia TWO and ONE North Planning Inspectorate Representations Now Open

20 Dec 19

Scottish Power Renewables has confirmed that the Development Consent Order (DCO) applications for the East Anglia TWO and East Anglia ONE North offshore wind farms have been accepted for examination by the Planning Inspectorate. The separate applications were submitted in October 2019 after extensive baseline surveys, design development and consultation with a range of stakeholders, including local authorities, councils and local communities.

Have your say

Now is the time now for you to read the proposal and to make your representations to the Planning Inspectorate register as an interested party. Deadline for registering is 27 January 2020. If you wish to have your say on both East Anglia ONE North and East Anglia TWO you must do this for each application separately.

The developers have also made hard copies of their final proposals available at the following locations:

Suffolk County Council, Endeavour House, 8 Russell Road, Ipswich IP1 2BX

East Suffolk Council, Woodbridge Library, New Street, Woodbridge, Suffolk, IP12 1DT

East Suffolk Council, Marina Centre, Marina, Lowestoft, NR32 1HH

Leiston Town Council, Main Street, Leiston, IP16 4ER

Once the Applicant has published and notified people of an accepted application, the Planning Inspectorate has approximately three months to prepare for the Examination.

Our position

  • The RYA believes that the impact that offshore wind farms have on navigational safety for recreational boating can be minimised provided developers fully address navigational safety issues of concern to the RYA.
  • The RYA continues to monitor the developments in East Anglia TWO and East Anglia ONE North, assessing their potential impact on recreational boating.
  • We also meet regularly with developers to discuss recreational navigational safety.

The RYA acknowledges the Government's desire to promote renewable energy, however we are keen to ensure the navigational safety of recreational boating around the coast. For more information, visit the Current Affairs hub.
